Whitney is a 26 year old young lady that was born with Sporadic Aniridia (absence of the iris). She has been legally blind since birth, and in the past three years has had 6 eye surgeries, with the last one being a Stem Cell Transplant on June 5th. Every few months we have to travel back to the Eye Center for check ups and with each of these surgeries she and her father and I have to stay in Ky/Oh for 9 to 10 days.
Travel expenses and hospital bills have and continue to take its toll on us as when we go, we have used all of our sick and vacation time, so there are three of us out of work, with bills continuously coming in, gas, food and lodging, we have exhausted all other funds. Whitney lives on her own, and works at Kohls. She is a very independent young woman, and doesn't like to depend on people for anything. She cannot drive but we and some very good family and friends make sure she gets where she needs to be. Please help in whatever way you can...We are only trying to raise money for travel expenses and bills for the next surgery at this time, I'm sure we will need to raise funds for future trips and possibly more surgeries. Thank you for your help in advance.
